As a stay-at-home Mom or woman in the corporate 9-5 world it can be pretty easy to think that’s the “only way” and “what else would I do” and feel guilty for wanting MORE.
It seems like you either have to stay home full time and only focus on the kids or be in corporate and try to work 8 hours a day and only get a few hours with your kids and struggle to keep up with everything at home.
P.S. I’ve included a few downloadable quotes as we go so just save them to your phone as a background!
Buuuuuut here’s my thing.
And I don’t believe it has to be that way. In fact, I know it doesn’t.
Maybe you spent a ton of $ and time getting a University degree and now you’re at home kind of wondering why you bothered.
Or maybe you are at work, have zero freedom and barely get to see your kids or participate in their activities.
I’m betting if you got the degree and started working you had pretty big dreams for yourself.
Now don’t get me wrong, kids are amazing and I love my little girl more than anything in the whole wide world but I’ve also always had big goals + dreams. We had her in 2016 only a couple years into my corporate career and I chose to stay home with her and help on the farm. But I’m working on my biz late at night or waking up at 5am in the morning because of her, not in spite of her. She’s my WHY. I want to make myself proud but also my family proud. Not that I think there’s anything wrong with focusing on being a full time Mom, because that is the most important job in the world!!! Plus if you’re a farm-wife like myself you’ve got a lot on the go! I just always knew I would do something more and I don’t know about you but I don’t have any interest in waiting until I am 40 or 50 to do so. Even if it takes a little longer, I know that if I give up on my dreams and don’t have “my own thing” I would feel disappointed in myself. You can’t pour from an empty cup and having a project of your own can help keep those pieces of you you may have lost becoming a Mom.
So here’s what I believe.
YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL.
And in case you forget – don’t forget to snag that phone screensaver to your left!
I am ALL about you becoming an amazing woman, becoming exactly who you want to be and pursuing your dreams while still being loving and attentive to your family.
You only have one life and in my opinion, you may as well spend it doing what you love, with who you love. Just because you’re busy and living life in the fast lane does not mean settling for anything less than what you want and have always dreamed of.
💁 I don’t believe in “either or”.🙅 You don’t have to be “just a mom” or “corporate girl”. You can go on vacation and still make money without being glued to your phone. You can have a business that lights you up, make the income you want to make and still be present for your family.
Call me crazy but I know it’s possible you can have it all.💃 Why? Because there are tons of other Moms just like you doing it! I’m making it happen myself. And guess what…you’re here so it’s working 🙂
The world is literally waiting for your gift, your secret sauce, that something amazing you have to contribute.
I know this may be hard to believe, but the world is waiting on YOU! Yes, YOU! You were born into the world with a unique gift, which nobody on this earth can duplicate.
Unless you take the first step, your dreams will never come true.
You can’t let fear win.
One of the biggest dream killers is fear. There are so many people who could have achieved amazing things if only they weren’t afraid. Just think about all the things you’ve wanted to do, but allowed fear to convince you that you weren’t capable, or good enough. In the movie After Earth, Will Smith’s character says, ““Fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice.” Choose not to let fear stop you from achieving your dreams.
So explore those deep down desires you’re too scared to tell anyone about,
achieve your dreams and become who you’ve always wanted to be.
Create that BIG vision. Take action.
You’ll be much happier if you go for it.
Imagine how much happier you’ll be if you’re living the life you always dreamed about or working towards it. The only thing that is stopping you, is you. Take control of your own happiness. Don’t keep your dreams waiting. Go after them today!
Because guess what…those little people are watching you. So make yourself and them proud.
And maybe you’re like well that’s all fine and great, but how the hell do I start and what am I going to do?!
